The Jacksonville Jaguars placed offensive lineman Walker Little on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. If he's vaccinated, Little will have a chance to pass through the league's protocols and be active for the Week 3 contest against the Arizona Cardinals. He was the 45th overall pick in the second round this year but hasn't seen any action in the first two weeks of the 2021 season. With very few experience with football after he started playing in 2019 in college, the Jaguars are hoping to develop Little during his rookie season. Even if Little is able to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols, it's unlikely that he'll see the field this week to make his NFL debut.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain in the Week 2 loss to the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Urban Meyer. High ankle sprains can keep players out anywhere from four to six weeks, so O'Shaughnessy is definitely going to miss some time for the Jaguars. The 29-year-old had been operating as the team's top pass-catching tight end, and he caught six of his eight targets for 48 yards in the season-opening loss to the Houston Texans. O'Shaughnessy caught only one pass for 26 yards before getting hurt on Sunday. Some combination of Chris Manhertz and rookie Luke Farrell should see more playing time as a result, but they won't be seriously considered as fantasy replacements.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (shoulder), who suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 2 loss to the Denver Broncos, is expected to be able to play in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Urban Meyer. Shenault is expected to practice this week, so unless he suffers a setback with his shoulder, he should be good to go for Week 3. However, before his injury on Sunday, the 22-year-old had only two catches for minus-three yards on seven targets. Through the first two weeks, Shenault has just nine catches on 17 targets for 47 yards. Marvin Jones Jr. was the only receiver for the Jags that was productive in the loss to Denver. Jacksonville will be throwing a lot in 2021, but with rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence going through growing pains, this receiving corps will be shaky on a weekly basis.
Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo missed his only two field-goal attempts in the team's Week 2 loss to the Broncos while converting his only extra-point opportunity. Lambo also missed his only field goal attempt in Week 1, but for whatever reason, head coach Urban Meyer isn't ready to move on. Meyer said that he's "concerned," but "not giving up on Josh Lambo" in a post-game interview. Lambo should be avoided entirely in all fantasy formats.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark Jr. caught just one pass for 19 yards in Week 2's 23-13 loss at the hands of the Denver Broncos. Chark's Week 2 dud comes on the heels of a Week 1 performance in which he dominated targets and found the end zone. The young wide receiver was partially a victim of circumstance in this one, as the entire offense struggled against a tough Broncos defense, but this was clearly a step in the wrong direction. Chark is still very fantasy viable as a boom/bust WR4 with big week-to-week upside, but fantasy managers will have to be wary of the wideout's volatility within a shaky offense until further notice.
